Whether you’re hosting a celebration or were asked to bring something to a party you’re attending, you’ll love all of the fun and festive recipes we found on Pinterest and pinned to PMall’s “4th of July!” Pinterest Board! As you can see from the American Flag-inspired cake at left, people have been sharing some great red, white and blue ideas – and we just can’t get enough of them!

For those of you don’t want to take on the challenge of the flag cake, be sure to check out our board at the above link – you’ll find tons of easy ways to add some July 4th flare to your food!

We found everything from using cookie cutters to create star-shaped watermelon bites to strategically making fruit kabobs with bananas, strawberries and blueberries so when you fill a platter with them it looks like the American Flag! We even pinned some great drink recipes for kids and adults!

The reusable red liner is artfully embroidered with PMall’s exclusive stars and stripes design and personalized with any family name or message so you can add a personalized touch to your party! If you don’t want to fill it with food, the gift basket can also be used to store all of the party plates, napkins and plastic ware that the guests will be using at the party. If you host the 4th of July party every year, this basket is a must-have! It also makes a great hostess gift for your friends and family, too!

Now that it’s summer, everyone will want to enjoy the nice weather outside so make sure you clean off your lawn chairs, stock up on sunscreen and bug spray and decorate your yard with one of our Personalized Yard Stakes, like the All American Personalized Yard Stake at left. The yard stake will let your guests know where the party is AND act as a great outdoor decoration! Customers love our personalized yard stakes because the design is magnetic and can be taken off the stake and switched out with another design whenever you’d like. Once you’ve purchased the yard stake with your first personalized magnet design for $32.95, you only have to pay $15.95 for any new magnet designs you’d like to personalize! You can switch out the magnet so that your yard stake is always celebrating the current season, holiday, birthday or any other celebration you’d like. The beautiful star pattern featured on the All-American magnet design will look great with all of your other party decorations and your guests will love that you’ve thought to have that July 4th flare outside.
